Grow with a financially sound partner
capiton is the investor that understands your vision and helps you to finance your growth. This may be through investing in new machines to expand production, or establishing a new logistics facility for your company. Or it may involve the acquisition of a competitor that can significantly expand your product range or improve your value creation chain. It could also allow you to expand your sales activities on another continent to facilitate sustainable growth in that region.
Our investment in your company can help you grow in a number of ways:
- It gives you the solvency you need to finance growth, in the form of equity. As a result you will improve your bank rating and credit standing. As well as providing additional equity, an investment by capiton as your partner will improve your credit rating and creditworthiness, particularly in respect of suppliers, customers and banks. In many cases, our involvement also helps entrepreneurs to redeem personal guarantees and liabilities.
- You can realise crucial investments, providing important impetus for continuing long-term growth.
- You will also benefit from our strategic expertise that we provide through an advisory board. This will allow you to access important insights and experience that can create new opportunities for you. In this context we perform an advisory function only, without getting involved in your everyday operations.
- You will diversify your risk, which will make your company more stable in the long term.
- When, at the end of the investment term, the planned growth has been realised, we work with you to find a partner that will support your company through the next phase. In some cases in the past we have also sold our interest back to the entrepreneur, who then became the sole proprietor again. Our investments in fruitwork, Trenkwalder and Hettich are examples of this kind of process.
Without capiton’s support, we would not have been able to achieve the kind of growth we have experienced.KD Pharma

One of capiton’s key principles is to consistently pursue the same goals as our portfolio companies and their management. For us, it’s not about making fast profits at any price, but about long-term healthy prospects for your company and its workforce.
At capiton we aim for solid growth that fully leverages a company’s potential. This is why we generally set aside additional capital for our portfolio companies to enable them to consistently finance and implement their growth strategies. Excessive levels of debt are also not part of our philosophy.
During the dynamic value appreciation phase, capiton provides active support and expertise, without getting involved in the operational side of your business. You will benefit from our extensive experience of similar cases.
In the end, your company will be stronger than ever. It will have grown in every respect, will be ideally equipped for the future, offer a secure workplace and be more valuable than ever. It will be a company that you, your workforce, and indeed we can be proud of.
